During the National C. diff and Advocacy Summit in April, the session on Medical Gaslighting garnered significant attention and proved to be one of the most well-received among attendees. The session was presented by Melissa Geraghty, PsyD, is a Licensed Clinical Health Psychologist and a Medical Gaslighting Sensitivity Trainer. Her session at the summit has been featured by Pharmacy Times.
